Secretary areilmm Surprised.
One thing Is ccrtnin and thnt is that
Sccretnry Gresham was surprised nt tho
news ot the continuation of the provision

running to and fro In tho departments
after the news was received, and when
things settled down tho order of tho day
t was "silence." At uny rato nothing not
even nu opinion could bo gotten out of
any department olllclal. Ouo oxplnna
tlonof the peculiar situation is that Min

changed the sugary compliments demand

expected to be quiet nhout tho business,

Auother explanation Is thnt the Instruc

The New York Building.
G. R. McGnnn, executive commissioner
for Maryland, is in Baltimore trying to
decldo what will be dono with bis build
ing, but Commissioner Foley ot New
York is right here in town fretting be
cause some one does not come along and
offer htm some part of the 1110,000 the
Empire state lavished Ion ber big, square,
white palace. New York had this white
elephant comfortably given to the wom
an's board once and accepted, too, but
when Potter Palmer made his big gift for
a permanent memorial building tho
women said they guessed thoy would not
tax New York's generosity, nnd now Air.
Foley Is worrying again. The most oi
New York's furniture has been disposed of
at private sale. The California builuing
has been sold to the World's Fair Wreck
ing and Salvngo company, which pro
poses to use it as a storehouse for mate
rial torn from other buildings for the de
molition ot which the company is negotiating.
